Why buy store-bought granola bars when it's so easy—and so much healthier—to make them at home? Switch them up with any dried fruit, nuts, or grains you like.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square metal baking pan with parchment paper; let excess hang over edge.

Step 2

Spread oats onto a baking sheet. Bake at 350°F until toasted, about 12 minutes. Place in a medium bowl; cool.

Step 3

Place sunflower seed butter, agave syrup, and oil in a microwavable bowl. Microwave at high until warm, about 30 seconds; whisk until smooth. Whisk in vanilla, salt, and egg white.

Step 4

Add pistachios and raisins to oats. Pour sunflower seed butter mixture over oat mixture; stir until well combined. Using a spatula, press mixture firmly into prepared pan.

Step 5

Bake at 350°F until lightly browned, 20 to 22 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes. Remove from pan using parchment paper. Cool completely on rack. Cut into 12 (4- x 1 1/3-inch) bars.
